Antarctica is one of the most remote and pristine places on Earth, often referred to as the world’s best-kept secret.
A magical place to visit, yet less than 100 climbers per year venture to climb Antarctica’s highest peak, Mount Vinson, because of the logistical complexities in getting there. Madison Mountaineering is one of only a handful of expedition tour operators allowed to climb in Antarctica due to our high caliber performance over the years in leading safe, environmentally responsible, and successful climbs. Garrett Madison has led 18 Mount Vinson expeditions with 98% climber success, as well as skiing the last degree to the South Pole. In addition to these two remarkable expeditions, we also offer Mount Sidley, the highest volcano in Antarctica. These expeditions can be done separately or combined if desired.
